Trump repeats the falsehood because of the absurd cost of his wall, hoping that at least some of his most gullible followers - is that a redundancy? - will believe him.

The administration has employed aggressive rhetoric and spoken consistently about securing the border and cracking down on undocumented immigrants in the US.

On the heels of the loss of Alabama's longtime Republican Senate seat to a Democrat - a race in which Trump-backed candidates lost twice - the president also said Saturday he plans to be "very much involved" in GOP primaries during this year's midterm elections.

But Trump's insistence on the border wall in exchange for a deal on DACA is widely seen as a nonstarter.

"There's no reason for seven years ... please don't do that to me", Trump said, in response to a DHS request for border wall funding.

On Tuesday, the New York Times reported that to get a wall, Trump is willing to slash funding "for border surveillance, radar technology, patrol boats and customs agents in its upcoming spending plan to curb illegal immigration - all proven security measures that officials and experts have said are more effective than building a wall along the Mexican border". On Tuesday, a federal judge in California declined the Trump administration's proposal to end the program.

It's unclear. Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat from NY, tweeted Tuesday that Trump's demand for a "completely ineffective" border wall was why they had been unable to reach a deal so far. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal , Trump was asked about his oft-repeated claims that Mexico will pay for the construction of a wall along its border with the. They're seeing about 40% more people [arrested] than was the case under the Obama administration, and those deportations are happening faster in the immigration court system.

Yet several Democrats are still pushing for a so-called clean bill. Democrats are planning to leverage the federal budget, which must be passed by January 19 and requires Democrat support, against the wall. "The general consensus is that a wall is not necessary", Hirono said. History will more than "little note" and will certainly "long remember" that the United States was undone by these elected leaders who were so concerned with getting accolades from the left-wing media that they rallied their followers into handing the majority to the Democratic party, which ended the last, best chance to Make America Great Again. Trump said Saturday these included included national security, infrastructure, military funding and immigration.

Trump's demand for a wall isn't the only hurdle to a deal, however. The program, which has helped thousands of people brought to the U.S.as minors to work and study legally, is incredibly popular.

And even just focusing on DACA recipients when it comes to chain migration, as Trump has proposed, would be controversial among Democrats.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said rebuilding the nation's infrastructure and bolstering the military would be priorities this year, as well as ensuring "that everyone enjoys the economic growth that's to come".
